Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
Reasons our dentists may recommend tooth extraction:
- A tooth has suffered decay so extensive it cannot be repaired with a filling or crown
- A crack or fracture, especially below the gums, has compromised the tooth
- Gum disease has caused a tooth to become loose
- A dental abscess in the root of a tooth cannot be treated with root canal therapy
- A tooth, such as a wisdom tooth, lacks space in the jaw
- A tooth prone to infection puts the health of a person with a compromised immune system at risk
Don't Put Your Oral Health on Hold Make an Appointment With a Dentist Today
In most cases, it's not wise to put off needed tooth extraction. If your teeth have extensive decay or if gum disease has loosened teeth, you are at greater risk of introducing infections to other parts of your mouth. The sooner you act, the sooner you can restore your dental health and get on the path to recovery.
If you have swelling in the gums, tooth pain, or other signs of infection, request a consultation. Our dentists at Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, will carefully examine your mouth to determine if an extraction is necessary.
Early intervention can prevent a simple extraction from ballooning into extensive dental problems. We can perform tooth extractions of permanent teeth and wisdom teeth as well, without resorting to an expensive trip to an oral surgeon. Send us a message today.

Tooth Extraction Timeline Using Gentle Dentistry
We'll take the time to get to know you so we can address all your concerns.
Sedation Dentistry: Extra Reassurance for Your Comfort
We use a gentle touch and are thorough with local anesthesia to make tooth extraction virtually painless, but we understand how it may still feel intimidating if you have dental anxiety or a sensitive smile. That's why we offer dental sedation, with three different types to meet the widest range of patient needs. If you'd like to explore your options or add calming sedation to your treatment plan, send us a message or give our Nashville office a call.

Dental Implants Can Fill in the Gaps Restore Full Form and Function to Your Smile
Implants are artificial tooth roots that can be surgically anchored in the jaw in the same spots the natural tooth roots once took. After they integrate with the jawbone over the course of several months, they can be topped with dental restorations made to look, feel, and function like real teeth.
Gulch Dental Studios coordinates with top Nashville oral surgeons for dental implant placement, and our team handles the custom restorations. Dr. Newman is a specialist in cosmetic dentistry who places a high priority on giving patients the most natural-looking results possible. You can rest assured that any restoration you receive from our Nashville, TN, dental office will be crafted to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
If you're having your wisdom teeth removed, you won't need to consider replacing them with dental implants. These teeth aren't necessary for full oral function, so once they're out, they're out for good.
Does Insurance Cover Tooth Extraction?
Yes! Insurance will typically cover wisdom teeth extractions and other tooth extractions when they are medically necessary, which applies to most patients who visit us for this service. Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, accepts most insurance plans. One of our care administrators can help you verify your coverage ahead of time and make the most of your benefits.
If you're receiving dental implants and restorations to replace extracted teeth, you should know that your restorations will also be eligible for coverage, although the implants will not.
Our practice accepts financing in addition to insurance so out-of-pocket costs aren't a burden. We work with CareCredit®, which offers loans for dental care that you can repay in monthly installments that suit your budget.
